Please help me figure out what's wrong

Hi Ladies.

So this is my first cycle TTC. I didn't chart, though I was planning on it if I didn't conceive this cycle.

I have for the past 3 months had 34 day cycles. I track them on Iperiod. I had really bad cramps all month long. I didn't really notice any CM up around when I thought I'd ovulate so I used preseed (just two weeks from when AF should start, which I know isn't always accurate but I'd promised DH I wouldn't "obsess" or chart or anything).

About a week after I thought I ovulated I started getting some CM, but not eggy just kinda sticky and clear. And my breasts hurt so bad that they woke me up at night. I still had bad cramps. Well on CD 31 I had a tiny bit of spotting. It just lasted through the morning and didn't get on a pad or anything, just when I wiped.

AF was 7 days late and I called my dr. I'd been getting - tests so she had me go in for a blood test. It came back neg. and she said to come in on monday and take a pill to make AF start. I went googling and saw that if AF was late because I ovulated late, it could still not show up on a blood test and cause me to abort the baby if I was pregnant. So, I've decided not to take the pill and just to keep waiting I guess...

Anyway today AF is 10 days late and my breasts are hurting very badly again. I also was watching tv tonight and just had to run to the bathroom to throw up. I had a lot more CM this morning, but it's gone now. I am seriously so confused. I have no idea what is going on with my body and I'm angry that, even though I'm usually never late any even if I AM late never THIS late. DH is mad at me for being this upset about not being pregnant. That's not why I'm upset, I'm upset because I dont know whats going on and I thought for sure with AF being 7 days late I was pg.

My dr has no interest in helping me figure out whats going on. I was thinking of getting a clearblue easy fertility monitor after DH gets paid on the 10th to at least make sure I'm ovulating (if AF has started by then, which I'm assuming and hoping it does). I also bought some Answer dip ovulation tests to see if maybe I'm ovulating now and thats why I had more CM.

I'm sorry this is so long, I'm just desperate here. I've super confused and angry that I'm still hopeful I'm pregnant even though I had a neg. blood test.

Any words of wisdom or advice would be greatly appreciated, as I'm not sure where I should go from here.

Thank you so much for making it this far

Aimee, I'm so sorry. You may just have to wait it out for another week to see what happens, since you're right, it could just be too early for a positive test. I really think you might need to change doctors though, to somebody who is a little more understanding. They could even do an ultrasound and might be able to see something. That is what they SHOULD do!! I'm sorry about the negative test, but I would say just keep testing every couple of days. If it were me I would wait at least a week before taking the pills. So sorry and I hope you get an answer soon!

Re: Please help me figure out what's wrong

The only experience I've had with this situation is my friend who's currently 12 weeks prego. She didn't test positive on a HPT or bloodwork tests even at 5 and 6 weeks pregnant. At 7 weeks she had an ultrasound and they told her she wasn't pregnant. I guess some people's bodies just don't reveal pregnancies the same way. I don't know if this is your situation or not, but I found it interesting (albeit frustrating) in my friend's case. GL

Re: Please help me figure out what's wrong

Thank you for the responses. That's interesting about your friend. Everyone is telling me "oh if the blood test is negative it's negative!". And you're right about needing a new dr too. Like I said, I don't care anymore if I'm pregnant or not, I just don't want to be if I take the pills, and I want to be SURE. Is there really ever a need to take them? Won't AF just come eventually?

I took a pregnancy test this morning (an early response one) and I thought I saw something but I dont think it was anything. DH couldn't see it and it kept moving so probably not there. I'll try again on Wed.

Yeah, I think if AF normally shows, and you haven't had any problems this far, then I don't see why you need to take the pills just yet. But if you start feeling any pain etc get to the ER right away... not to scare you or anything but sometimes ectopic pregnancies the hcg doesn't rise as quickly.

Re: Please help me figure out what's wrong

Yeah I'm scared of that too I'm almost thinking of just making an appointment on monday to get that looked at just to be sure. I have no symptoms of an ectopic except SOME abdominal pain on my right side but that's where I get gas pain too when I'm pregnant so...And that pain comes and goes like, it'll be days that I won't have it then it'll come for a few min and then be gone, so I don't think that's it.

My aunt scared me because she said the two people she's known that had them both just had them erupt and they passed out. Never any warning signs, so it scares me because I'm alone with the boys all the time, ya know?
